Regardless of politics, this book should be read by everyone.
R. Knapp
In addition, the appendix holds a wealth of information, including the articles of impeachment that were written for Johnson, Nixon and Clinton.

The book is clear, informative, and as added bonuses - it's short and readable.

Format: Paperback
While the title announces the obvious bias of the writers, this work is not an attempt at Bush-bashing. On the contrary, the authors present a dispassionate list of four articles and specifications against George W. Bush for high crimes and misdemeanors.

In layman's language, the authors make a compelling case for recommending impeachment of our president. They compile their reasons as one would expect to hear them argued in a court of law. The book provides the reader with background information on where impeachment came from, what the founding fathers thought of the concept, and how it should be applied.

The most disturbing parts of this short book is the list of specifications against the president based upon what he has allowed or ordered to happen: unlawful detentions of American citizens, kidnappings, torture, and constitutional abuse by changing the law and the balance of power within our republic by adding "signing statements." The book explains clearly the constitutional limitations on presidential power that is currently being ignored. The specifications do not sound like anything I would have imagined in America, or what it means to be an American.

Our president took an oath to faithfully execute the office of the president and preserve, protect and defend the constitution. After reading this, you may have your doubts.

I recommend this for everyone.

Format: Paperback
Regardless of which political party you identify with, I urge you to read this short but critical text. At 144 pages, most readers will digest this little tome in one day, undoubtedly fascinated and persuaded by its core arguments.

The book conveniently chronicles the major legal blunders and human rights offenses perpetrated by the Bush Administration including: illegal indefinite detention of US and international citizens without allowing them legal counsel; condoning of torture; illegal wire-tapping and pre-emptive warfare. Arguments could also be made that the Administration is guilty of violating myriad environmental laws.

I'm proud to see that this book has turned out to be legally astute, logical and comprehensive. The authors avoid ad hominem attacks on the president's character, and instead focus on his actions, his violations and some similarities to Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton.

The arguments are cogently written and easy to follow even for lay readers like me who are not legal scholars.

It's important to remember that impeachment is a two-part process. Put simply, the impeachment from the House is basically the investigation, accusation or pre-trial stage. No removal from office occurs at this point. Next, the Senate acts as judge and jury, examining the details and removing the accused from office if the incriminating evidence is clear and persuasive enough. (The book covers the process in more eloquent detail.)

It is of paramount importance to use this governmental tool called impeachment to show our citizens and the rest of the world that we are indeed concerned and outraged by subversion of the U.S. Constitution and international law.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A tutorial of Constitutional basics (the question of impeachment can be considered ancillary) well-written, focused, deliberate, succinct, & easy-to-read. It is written in the context of a Bush impeachment but also in the context of others who have faced impeachment: Andrew Johnson, Nixon, & Clinton. It avoids Us-Them and focuses on Principles. Its purpose appears honorable, and I am motivated with desire to read a defense of similar quality.

I am reminded of how our government was designed so that democracy could work, and I am reminded of the fragility & vulnerabilities of democracy. Tocqueville (current reading) clearly attributes the success of democracy in America to separation of powers. Thus, the question becomes that of separation of powers in times of conflict. Above all, I am reminded of Our Responsibilities (Democracy means Us).

Regardless of politics, this book should be read by everyone. I bought mine directly from the Center for Constitutional Rights. I came to Amazon to buy more for distribution to my friends (free shipping if I get at least 3). If you know of a well-written defense, please chase me down. I want to read it.

65 of 74 people found the following review helpful By Tough times call for Tough action on March 10, 2006
Format: Paperback
I have been skeptical of this "impeachment" talk since I first it heard it publicly muttered. However, as disaster after disaster has happened under Bush's watch, I couldn't simply ignore the impeachment banter. So, it was with some reservation that I picked up this book written by the Center for Constitutional Rights.

I was apprehensive about reading it not just because of the subject, but also the typical inaccesible writing style of attorneys. However, I found this book and the arguments laid out, easy to digest and after careful reading - easy to agree with.

The Center for Constitutional Rights' arguments are thoughtful, pragmatic, and - I actually have to say - necessary. I can only hope that there will be some Senators with guts enough to take the stand before things get any worse.
